I worked on Aurora Borealis tonight and finished Pattern 1. this is a flat pattern variation. I did a series of over five and over two to create the openings for the beads. This is surrounded by Madeira gold over two as well and you can see I left some dangling at the top on the right. I will finish the column up after I work the bottom row of the next pattern. After placing the beads, I did uprights over five threads and on top of the beads using burgundy Soie d"Alger.
